If you haven’t heard: On November 13th, I’ll be back in the hot seat at Lucene/Solr Revolution 2014 answering tough Solr questions — submitted by users like you — live, on stage, sight unseen.

Today, I’m happy to announce the Panel of experts that will be challenging me with those questions, and deciding which questions were able to Stump The Chump!

In addition to taunting me with the questions, and ridiculing all my “Um”s and “Uhh”s as a struggle to answer them, the Panel members will be awarding prizes to the folks who have submitted the question that do the best job of “Stumping” me. Questions can be submitted to our panel via stump@lucenerevolution.org any time until the day of the session. Even if you won’t be able to attend the conference, you can still participate — and do your part to humiliate me — by submitting your tricky questions.
